Lumen’s Open and Enriched Course Materials

Lumen course materials provide an enriched educational experience using OpenStax textbooks implemented in your institution’s learning management system (LMS). We pre-design courses using curated video, textbooks and other open educational resources. Instructors use our editable platform to re-order, revise, remix and make the course content their own.

Lumen courses incorporate a variety of supplemental materials such as assessments, assignments, study guides, online homework problem sets for quantitative courses, slide decks and other curated contributions from faculty members across the open education community.

We support institutional leaders and faculty members creating open education programs that improve student success and incorporate best practices from institutions across the U.S.

How We Help

Our clients routinely replace $150-$200 textbooks with a $5 course materials fee – or even zero direct cost to students.

With 100% free access to all course materials from the first day of class, students find education more accessible, affordable and attainable.

Lumen-supported courses typically yield higher pass rates compared to courses using commercial materials.

Our collaborative process helps instructors effectively use, teach and innovate with OER to achieve defined student learning outcomes.

We provide affordable, ongoing course and faculty support to sustain the quality of student learning over time.
